The Iguazú National Park opened to visitors more 900 meters of trails in the access to the Falls. The new catwalks of the upper circuit lead to Salto San Martin, one of the most well-known of the 275 waterfalls, after the famous Devil's Throat, the largest and tallest of the whole of the attraction divided between Brazil and Argentina .
On the Argentine side of the conservation unit, which lies on the border with Foz do Iguaçu, in the west of Paraná, there are more than 4 km of trails that pass through the forest and over the Iguassu River. Like most, the bases of the new access are of concrete and the structure is of iron galvanized, that does not rust with the humidity. The work lasted a year and cost the equivalent of seven and a half million reais. The forecast is to further increase access in 2016.
The head of the park, keeper Omar Cañete, anticipates that at the end of the catwalk will be built a lookout over the San Martin jumping, allowing visitors to enjoy the scenery better. The trail has a unique meaning, which increases the circulation and makes it possible to enjoy the ride better.
Since the beginning of the year, more than 961 thousand tourists and residents of the region have already been booked. And, according to the direction, each person takes from six to eight hours to do the whole tour. With the new footbridge, the suggestion of the tour guides is to reserve two days to know the attraction. For this, the ticket for the second day costs half the price. The entire entry for Brazilians costs P $ 200, the equivalent of R $ 56, and can only be paid in the Argentinean currency.
